At Rutgers, Eddie has studied euphonium and brass pedagogy with Aaron Vanderweele, Alan Baer, and Jerry Peel. He has played in Rutgers’ finest ensembles, along with several brass bands across the tri-state area.
Eddie is an active educator throughout New Jersey. He has instructed several marching bands in the state including Monroe Township, Toms River North, and Bridgewater-Raritan High Schools. Most notably, he works on the staff at John P. Stevens High School, where he instructs the brass and is a member of the marching band design team. Eddie maintains a private studio of eight students, and his students have earned acceptance into several honor ensembles and university music departments.
He attributes his love for drum corps to his father and uncle, his two greatest teachers and mentors. Eddie marched with The Cadets2 in 2012 and 2016. 2018 will be his first year on staff at the Bushwackers.
